Stuntman Gary Connery is thought to have become the first person to jump out of a helicopter and land safely without deploying a parachute.

Gary 42 used a wingsuit to make his descent from 2,400 feet above Oxfordshire and landed on a pile of 18,600 cardboard boxes.

During the flight, which took less than a minute to complete, he was fitted with a parachute for the jump, which saw him accelerate to 80mph, but it was not deployed.

Mr Connery has worked as a stuntman on films including Die Another Day, Batman Begins and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
